Page Break in Word when Scrivener Is Open

Perhaps a bit of an odd question.

When I happen to be working in Word, and my Scrivener application is open, if I try to insert a page break in the word document using the keyboard command SHIFT+COMMAND+ENTER, the Scrivener Scratch Pad window shows up, and there is no page break in my Word Document.

Why is this, and is there a workaround?


Scrivener uses a global shortcut for bringing up the scratch pad; this is so you can pull that up when working in other applications and jot down notes. If the shortcut conflicts with something you use regularly, you can assign it to something else or disable it entirely in the General preference tab. See the “Hot key” setting under Scratch Pad.
